There are no values for trimming an aircraft. The Elevator trim ( which is the most commonly used trim ) purpose is to help relieve the pressures required of the yoke when trying to hold a certain attitude.....level, climb or descent.Set the attitude by using your yoke, then use the trim until you do not feel the need to hold the yoke anymore to maintain your desired attitude. As your attitude changes you will find that you will also have to adjust the trim accordingly.John M

I use number-pad #1 for nose-up and #7 for nose-down trim in FS9.i.e.,Elevator Trim Down Num Pad 7Elevator Trim Up Num Pad 1One is "trimming" the pressure off the yoke so the machine will maintain the desired attitude without any further yoke input. This trim-method will guarantee " . . . my landings will become softer." Hope this helps.
